Error: no documentation of type ‘A’ and topic ‘O’ (or error in processing help)

Hi Paz,

Sorry you're having this problem.

Do things work normally for you if you run it some other way (e.g. by knitting an R Markdown file)?

What is the exact sequence (or an example of one) that triggers this? i.e. are you doing something like the following in a fresh R session and getting that error message:

mtcars %>%

If possible, could you please turn this into a self-contained reprex (short for reproducible example)? It will help us help you if we can be sure we're all working with/looking at the same stuff.


If you've never heard of a reprex before, you might want to start by reading the help page. The reprex dos and don'ts are also useful.

There's also a nice FAQ on how to do a minimal reprex for beginners, below:

What to do if you run into clipboard problems

If you run into problems with access to your clipboard, you can specify an outfile for the reprex, and then copy and paste the contents into the forum.

reprex::reprex(input = "fruits_stringdist.R", outfile = "")
